BioCorRx Provides Business Update for the Third Quarter of 2021
ANAHEIM, CA, Nov. 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NewMediaWire -- BioCorRx Inc. (OTCQB: BICX) (the “Company”), a developer and provider of innovative treatment programs for substance abuse and related disorders, today provided a business update for the third quarter ended September 30, 2021 and reported on recent corporate developments.
Lourdes Felix, CEO, CFO and Director of BioCorRx Inc., stated, “We are pleased to report continued meaningful progress towards U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) drug approval process of BICX104, a gradual release implantable pellet for opioid use disorder. Notably, we were awarded approximately $3.5 million for the second phase of a grant which was awarded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). This is a major milestone as this funding is non-dilutive and substantially covers our financial costs as we move through the FDA approval process. In addition, we expanded our agreement with IriSys LLC, the San Diego-based contract development and manufacturing organization (CDMO) that was recently acquired by Recro. Under the expanded agreement, Recro will provide analytical validation services and cGMP manufacturing of registrational batches of BICX104 to support BioCorRx’s potential filing of a New Drug Application (NDA) for BICX104 with the FDA.
“We are also building our intellectual property portfolio. Towards this end, we filed patent applications related to BICX104 with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and the Russian Patent Office (Rospatent). Filing these patent applications is another key milestone in our intellectual property strategy to build a global patent portfolio, as we advance towards commencing our first-in-human clinical trial of BICX104 which will start next year.”
A copy of the Company’s quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the third quarter ended September 30, 2021 has been filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission and posted on the Company’s website at https://ir.biocorrx.com/.
